A Guide for Things to Do in Gettysburg

 

Gettysburg is filled with things to do all through the year, but at Christmas the city comes alive with its own brand of holiday magic. Here is a holiday guide from your friends at Homesale Realty of things to do in Gettysburg, PA.

Gettysburg Things to do Gettysburg

Annual Gingerbread Celebration and Holiday Mart

Nothing says Christmas cheer quite like a tastefully decorated gingerbread house.  Gettysburg will celebrate this festive tradition on December 5th and 6th at the Gingerbread Celebration Mart and Holiday Mart held at the Harrisburg Area Community College in Gettysburg.   You will be able to tour gingerbread houses made by both professional and amateur bakers from around the Gettysburg area. You can also enter a house of your own in the competition. Don't forget to wear your favorite ugly holiday sweater on December 5th to participate in the Ugliest Sweater contest. Local vendors will be on display with their holiday offerings, so you can do some pre-Christmas shopping while you are exploring the houses.

 

See the Shriver House Museum in its Holiday Glory

U.S. history plays a significant role throughout the year in Gettysburg. Visit the Shriver House Museum beginning Thanksgiving evening to see the home decorated for an 1860s Christmas.  See the Shriver's Christmas tree filled with candles and their handmade holiday decorations spread throughout their home.  Tour the Shriver home by candlelight and hear the family's story of how the Battle of Gettysburg and Civil War impacted their lives.

Candlelight Christmas tours will begin on Thanksgiving evening, November 27th and continue Saturday evenings through December 20, 2014. For additional information on the Shriver House Museum or to make reservations for a Christmas tour, please call 717-337-2800.

See Santa at the Outlet Shoppes

Gettysburg offers its residents exceptional shopping at the Outlet Shoppes, and at Christmas you can shop for a bargain while taking your kids to see the Jolly Old Elf himself. Santa arrives on Saturday, November 22 at 10:00 a.m., and the entire mall will come alive with a little festival to mark his arrival. Carriage rides, games and crafts will all be available for your family to enjoy, making this an excellent choice among the many holiday things to do in Gettysburg, PA.

 

Catch the Gettysburg Christmas Parade

While other communities have Thanksgiving Day Parades, Gettysburg saves the festivities to celebrate Christmas. Watch the Old Getty Place Christmas Parade as it travels from Baltimore Street at Gettysburg Tours to Lincoln Square, where the city's Christmas tree resides and then on to Liberty Street and Lefever Street. After the parade, which is held Saturday, December 6 at 7 p.m., children can see Santa at Santa's Shanty or watch while the Christmas tree is lit for the season.

 

As you can see, the holiday season brings many fun and historic things to do in Gettysburg, PA. Why should you enjoy these as a visitor? With many beautiful homes (including historic ones) for sale in Gettysburg, you can be in on the action all season long. Talk to the team at Homesale Realty to find a home in Gettysburg.
